The Chinese have upped the ante on space exploration by being the third nation to probe the Moon, just behind us and Russia. Their lander soft landed and deployed a rover, all recorded on camera. They next plan to land an astronaut there and later build a space station all before 2020. After seeing the rover, bedecked with the Chinese flag crawling over Moon’s surface will our politicians reignite the “space race” as we did after the Russians sent Sputnik into orbit? Let’s hope.
